Random Website Monday

these are destined to be a pair of socks...
obviously I can't read a pattern
that says Knit 2 Purl 2 not Knit 1 Purl 1.
Also the original pattern
Fred and George
is for toe up socks.
So I try something totally new
2 socks at a time.
and no I am not frogging 2 inches of ribbing.
The socks are the way they are.
And hopefully will be finished by the end of this week.Specifics:
US 5 DPN
Woolease 2 skeins
Been a little bit busy around here. Last week there was a shooting at the local Hospital, the shooter was shot by AST (Alaska State Troopers) and a male Radiologist (who was shot by the shooter). A lady was also shot, she has been medivaced up to Anchorage where on Sunday she came out of the Medical Induced Coma and has spoken with her husband (as of Sunday). Margaret attends the same church as I do. Also sometime in the immediate future the school bus drivers are going on strike. This affects our family as the Security company DH works for is being utilized to provide security. So tonight DH work the hospital shift, then comes home, sleeps and then heads out to the bus barn to protect the buses. DM is babysitting Bumpkins after she gets off of work until I can pick her up after I get done at 9 pm. This should be a very interesting week.

Thanksgiving was nice. Princess came down with her cat, and was very surprised that cats don't get along very well. Easier to get a dog and cat together than 2 cats.
Our dinner consisted of 2 10 lb turkeys (lots of turkey leftovers for everyone), spinach/mandarin orange salad, cranberry sauce, Hawaiian Sweet Rolls, instant mashed taters, gravy, brussel sprouts, sweet potatoes, cranberry stuffing and the pies. Sweet potato (w/o crust) apple, pumpkin, forest fruits wonderfully baked by Sarah Lee and Safeway.

Friday nights parade was super short. And Kenai has a color guard! Finally I know what they do... March w/a flag to the beat of a drum. Poor kids, it was starting to rain. The firework display was beautiful. Bumpkins loved it all. She even got up to go Black Friday shopping with Princess and I. What a trooper, only complained when we were in JoAnns for 2 hours waiting in the cutting line. But I spent 50 dollars and saved over 100!

Today Bumpkins and I decorated the house with the Advent calendar wall hanging, the Nativity banner and the wreath. (yes Princess the Easter Decorations are still up).

We've got some up, too. Christmas ones, not Easter! It is so fun, we have had our decor packed since the Christmas before last. Jan 2007 was the last time I saw them.
